The Looe App

It’s official, Looe now has its very own App!

iLoveLooe App iconIt’s finally here!

The first and only mobile phone App dedicated to our lovely, picturesque Cornish fishing town of Looe and it’s called the iLoveLooe App.

The icon on the left is the new icon being used for the App and all other iLoveLooe bits and bobs. I hope you like it. It’s a mix between a delicious jelly bean and a li-lo 🙂

Four months in the making, the iLoveLooe ‘mobile guide to Looe’ is an essential guide for locals and visitors alike. It’s packed full of features for all users, and as someone said to me:

“it’s like having the whole of Looe in your pocket!”

A short iLoveLooe App video

Here’s a short video about the App. It shows you a few ideas for ways you can use the App and ways in which it will be really useful to anyone who downloads it.

Crank up the volume if you want to get jiggy with it 😉

The App covers Looe and the surrounding area

Looe mapYou will find the Looe App an ever expanding and growing encyclopedia of information on East Looe, West Looe and the surrounding area.

It enables you to keep in touch with Looe and the Looe community website, iLoveLooe.co.uk. By using the App and social media, you can stay up-to-date with local news and events, send messages and even upload photos to the App.

For visitors to Looe

The iLoveLooe App is the perfect tool to help you find your holiday accommodation, somewhere to eat, local attractions, car parks, gorgeous sandy beaches, what’s on and much more.

It will enable you to plan you holiday, work out what to do on rainy days with the kids and reveal all the hidden gems around Looe that you might not otherwise have known of.

You can also watch local videos, browse photos and use the GPS enabled maps already installed on the App.

For locals and residents of Looe and the surrounding area

If you live in Looe like I do, then you will find the App a really useful way to quickly find and communicate with people who offer local services and products in Looe.

  1. Say you’re looking for a builder or a plumber, the App has this information already built in.
  2. Perhaps you want to know a hairdresser’s number, they’re already in the iLoveLooe App too.
  3. What about hiring a taxi for that night out you promised yourself or to pick your mum up from the station? Well, they’re in the App as well.

Having the App on your phone means you have a mobile directory of local information about Looe, with you at all times.

Help spread the word

I really hope you like the App and see how it will benefit Looe and help its users in so many ways.

Because it’s so new, I could really do with your help in showing it to as many people as possible. You can do this by texting friends and family, tweeting and mentioning it in your Facebook feeds etc. Anything you can do will be really appreciated.

If you have a Twitter, Facebook, Google+1 or any other social media account, please send out a tweet or add a ‘Like’ to the iLoveLooe Facebook page.
